That is why I thought to grow own iceberg lettuce plants in pots. So that I can harvest leaves anytime and use it in various dishes as well as this awesome spicy lettuce salad. I bought a packet of lettuce seeds from a plants/seeds shop. It costs me around Rs 60 for that packet of iceberg lettuce seeds.
I sowed seeds on 9th October 2019 and after around 2 months, yesterday I harvested 2 lettuce plants which were not growing as faster as other lettuce plants (because I have grown 2 plants in the same pot) in my rooftop garden.
